The five swimmers—all of whom were freshmen or sophomores—were the Crimson’s first NCAA competitors since All-American and United States Olympian Alex Meyer ’10 represented Harvard in 2010.
After commencing day two of competition with a promising 27-point lead, the Harvard men’s swimming and diving team (6-2, 6-0 Ivy) sank to second place behind No. 24 Princeton (8-0, 7-0) in the 2012 Ivy League Swimming and Diving Championships, held this weekend held at Princeton.
In its first game of Ivy League play, the Harvard women’s basketball team trumped its old Ancient Eight rival Dartmouth, 71-63.
After the Crimson claimed victory this past weekend in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament and came just shy of earning an Associated Press Top 25 ranking earlier this week, interest in the team is at an all-time high.
